International reputation for excellence

Our CPD programme builds upon our 125-year history and international reputation for excellence and innovation in both teaching and research.

Giving a more tailored approach to CPD, it allows participants to adapt their activity as required across their cycle. Our courses are available for the whole dental team.

Quality assured

Each of our courses, from webinars through to practical content, is subject to our stringent quality assurance processes. Our content is created and delivered by highly experienced course leaders.

Our CPD also links to the General Dental Council’s standards for the dental team through CPD development outcomes, helping the dental team meet the verifiable requirements.

Certification from each course will be provided upon completion.

This is a great format to present CPD in the current climate, and it is easily accessible around other commitments.
